If at first you don't succeed, try again.

That is the approach Sochaux is taking in terms of Rangers midfielder Maurice Edu.

Having had a previous bid worth an estimated $774,400 turned down, Sochaux has launched a second bid for the U.S. international. The French club, currently home to Charlie Davies, is hopeful that this new bid will be enough to secure Edu's services.

"We've made a second bid for Edu and we've made a bid for one player in the English Championship. We need an answer quickly," Sochaux assistant coach Stephane Gilli told STV. "Our chairman has spoken to Rangers' chairman (Craig Whyte). Obviously we want the player but it's up to Rangers. We think he is a quality player. We need him and we need him quickly."

Rangers manager Ally McCoist said last week that he would prefer for Edu to sign an extension than to let him go elsewhere.

What do you think of Sochaux's continued interest in Edu? Still think Edu should look for greener pastures?
